From Postcard Teas

Hijiri Hojicha is a dark roasted Japanese tea with a sweet tobacco taste from the Obayashi family who have been producing award-winning teas completely naturally for over 30 years. On their small farm of about 8 acres in Okumikawa, Aichi they have maintained many of their 100 year old Yabukita trees just like the locals in these mountains who often keep a row of old tea bushes or yamacha ("mountain tea’) as they call them. These simple country teas are either produced by hand or taken after picking to a small factory like the Obayashi’s one which helps make many of the local people’s tea.

Brew with boiled water that has been allowed to cool a little to about 90°C and a teaspoon per cup.
